Where can I find downloaded files on my Samsung Galaxy smartphone?
The location of your downloaded files will depend on what you downloaded and the app that you used to download it. Most of your files are organised within the My Files app, however some files will not appear here. Some apps, such as Netflix, store their downloads securely on your phone and are only available through the app itself.
If you can't locate images downloaded from the Google app, make sure your storage permissions are enabled on your device. Find out where the Google app saves downloaded images.
You can find almost all of the files on your smartphone in the My Files app. By default this will appear in the folder named Samsung.
If you are having trouble finding the My Files apps, try using the search bar at the top of the screen.
The My Files app automatically organises your files into categories, making your documents easy to find. You can also look through your recent used files, search for a file by name or browse all the files you have saved.
Please note: not all downloaded content will be available in My Files. Content that has been downloaded within a streaming app that allows listening or viewing offline will normally be available only within that app itself. This is most commonly due to copyright restrictions.
